The Back To School Blues

Trust me, it's not about the 6 hours of free time I'll magically get back that has me singing the back-to-school blues.  Not even close.  Instead, it's the dent on my bank account.  School fees, new clothes, new gear all lumped into one single month... and enough to deck out two stylish boys. The game just got even pricier now that my eleven year old now wears mens' clothes.  You read that right, my son and my hubby can share shirts now. I'm not … [Read more...]

But by the time November rolls around I've lost my gusto.  I fall into making the same ol' sandwiches everyday, and yes...sometimes...even sending him with lunch money. This year I have two kiddos going to school, well - one going to 'big' school, and one in preschool 2 … [Read more...]

Going To Preschool

I believe in the power of preschool. I know that may seem bold, but my children do not go to daycare, they do not have a day home, or a regular babysitter.  They spend the majority of their days with me.  My husband and I work back to back shifts in the same restaurant, so the kids are either with one of us, or both of us.  If not with us, they're with their grandparents. We have lived life this way for the past 8.5 years...and it works for … [Read more...]
